About the 2007 Peter Pan Peanut Butter Recall
On February 14, 2007, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning to consumers about a possible link between Peter Pan peanut butter and a salmonella outbreak. Though the FDA recommended that consumers immediately discontinue use and discard all Peter Pan peanut butter containers with a product code (found on the lid) beginning with “2111,” at least 288 cases across 39 states had already been linked to the product’s contamination.
The warning also extended to Great Value peanut butter brands bearing the same initial product code. Both Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter products were manufactured in the same Georgia facility operated by ConAgra, which also announced a voluntary recall shortly following the FDA warning.
Several individuals have required urgent medical attention and hospitalization after ingesting Peter Pan and Great Value brands peanut butter tainted with salmonella. In May of 2015, NBC News reported the salmonella outbreak was blamed for sickening at least 625 people in 47 states.
Ultimately, ConAgra Foods agreed to pay $11.2 million to settle a federal charge that the company shipped Peter Pan peanut butter contaminated with salmonella from a plant in Georgia, the outlet reported.
Symptoms of Salmonella Poisoning
Salmonella is a type of bacteria generally found in undercooked or improperly handled poultry or eggs. Typically the bacteria settle in the stomach and intestines which then become inflamed, bringing about the symptoms of salmonella poisoning (or gastroenteritis). In the case of the Peter Pan salmonella outbreak, contamination was attributed to the use of dirty containers or equipment since manufacturing the peanut butter requires the prime ingredient (peanuts) to be heated to germ-killing temperatures.
Salmonella poisoning can lead to potentially life-threatening infections in individuals with poor health or compromised immune systems. At Phillips Law Group in Phoenix, Arizona, our Peter Pan peanut butter recall attorneys and salmonella lawyers will pursue appropriate compensation for individuals affected by similar outbreaks.
Salmonella poisoning can be indicated by the following symptoms:
- Abdominal Cramping

Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
